Overview

It's yet another Kool & the Gang compilation, this time an installment in Universal's cheaply packaged (but ecologically conscious) Number 1's series. Not all of the selections went to number one on the R&B singles chart. Some reached number two or three -- which means that they are designated as bonus tracks -- while one ("Get Down on It") comes from an album that went to number one. For the most part, this is a decent way to become more familiar with the band's more pop-oriented material, while other sets place more focus upon the years when it played straight-up funk (as highlighted with "Jungle Boogie," one of the bonus tracks). Do keep in mind that much of the band's best material came nowhere near the top of any chart.
